2. Pre-ride Checks

Before heading out to the off road training area, we run through various pre-ride checks such as checking headlights, indicators, horn, etc, as well as discussing some regular maintenance routines.

3. Off-road training

Once all the pre-ride checks have been performed, we progress to the off road training area. Here, we demonstrate controlled braking, counter-steering, picking up a dropped bike, u-turns, gear changing and heaps of other relevant topics.

4. On-Road Training

Once you have perfected the techniques off-road, we then head out on the road to practice these techniques in and around the town of Kingaroy. This is where you will learn to manage a range of road/traffic situations, perform a hill start, apply roadcraft, anticipate other road users and much more.
